EA Sports revealed the cover for Madden NFL 22 on Thursday morning and former Ohio State quarterback Justin Fields can be seen in the first trailer and screenshots for the game, which will hit stores in late August.
Fields, who was selected by the Chicago Bears with the No. 11 overall pick in this year’s draft, makes a brief appearance at the 32-second mark of the trailer while wearing his home navy blue uniform. He’s also in a screenshot for the game wearing his road white jersey (sans helmet), preparing for a game at the Minnesota Vikings.
Fields and other rookies, including New York Jets quarterback Zach Wilson, San Francisco 49ers quarterback Trey Lance and New England Patriots quarterback Mac Jones, were asked earlier this offseason to predict their Madden ratings for the upcoming edition of the game. Fields was perhaps the most realistic.
“To be honest, I think my Madden rating is going to be like a 78-81, of course, just because… rookies,” he said.
Madden will share player ratings over the course of the summer, so we’ll have to wait to find out what Fields’ actual ratings will be. But for now, we at least have our first glimpse of him in the game.
